Absurda, mas divertida, a premissa confere um certo grau de interesse ao filme, que ainda se beneficia do tom adolescente descompromissado.
| Original Score: 3/5

However it may please those who love movies that blare with pop songs, young science fiction fans will stomp away in disgust.

Visually exciting sci-fi film which suffers from a lackluster screenplay.

Director Frakes steps triumphantly into the ring of Hollywood mediocrity with this effort...

Each actor does his very best to portray the characters realistically and perhaps their relative inexperience is a factor.

Light, silly, photographed with colour and depth, and rather a good time.

Sit through this one, and you won't need a magic watch to stop time; your DVD player will do it for you.

A hip ride into hyper-time, Clockstoppers is a lively and enjoyable adventure for all ages at any time.

Sci-fi hijinks and a government conspiracy serve merely as window dressing for a ham-fisted message about the importance of good parenting and owning a car in high school.

I was actually entertained and amused; but overall the movie is adequate and little more.

Time literally stops on a dime in the tries-so-hard-to-be-cool "Clockstoppers," but that doesn't mean it still won't feel like the longest 90 minutes of your movie-going life.

There are some dazzling water effects, but there's not enough to like about the movie to recommend it.

This could be the first movie since "Cool As Ice" that was outdated before it hit the screen.

A high-spirited, genial romp that's suffused with a becoming innocence.

If I were 13, I might be sufficiently entranced by the movie's bicycle stunts ... and wouldn't be wondering why ideas for science fiction films haven't progressed very far from Star Trek's first seasons all those decades ago.

I thought my own watch had stopped keeping time as I slogged my way through Clockstoppers.

This a Nickelodeon movie, and that's where it belongs: on children's cable television.

An intermittently pleasing but mostly routine effort.

A family-friendly fantasy that ends up doing very little with its imaginative premise.
